2:09am
see kids so checked out with the electronics. my kids love ipads, too, but we try to put a limit on the amount of time -- >> so they don't zone. >> because otherwise, that's all they want. i want them to learn how to build things and manipulate things with their hands. >> you're right. we do this thing called the social cues. it comes on the "new york times," this is a question that struck us, and something we have to talk about. in the middle of a seated musical performance at a top venue, my wife and i were overwhelmed by the rank odor of feet. someone had taken off her shoes. the people on either side of us had theirs on. the smell was so overpowering that the person must have been in our immediate vicinity. what should we have done? so -- >> that's revolting. that's revolting. >> what would you do in that kind of a situation? >> i think i would say something. >> what would you say? >> i would tap them on the shoulder and say, would you mind putting your shoes back on. >> you have moxie.
